kinda stuck for a game to get into right now. burned out of wow classic, got me through the lockdown but there's really nothing to do at endgame in between waiting days to do a raid. tried FFXIV and the levelling via main story quest is the worst leveling experience i've ever seen in a game, tedious beyond belief. no zone or global chats makes the game feel empty and dead too. i think i've finally given up on mmorpgs tbh, so much potential but so much bad development choices.

a few big games on the horizon that i'm looking forward to but many months away; cyberpunk 2077, new world, elden ring, baldurs gate 3, grounded

downloading warzone again for a multiplayer fix.

I've been playing the Outer Wilds this week.

I don't know how I missed this in 2019, definitely one of the best games I played in ages.

Oxygen Not Included. Very steep learning curve but addictive. I'm following a detailed steam guide for the last few weeks and I'm still only half way through, there would be much more trial and error without it as some aspects are not intuitive.

Farcry:Primal.
With Farcry 6 on the horizon I said I go back to Farcry:Primal which I skipped. Very good game in fairness with a new slant to the Farcry franchise. Just want to pull out a machine gun and start blasting..

I stopped playing the Far Cry series after 3 because I was dissapointed with it. Just replayed Far Cry 2, though. Amazing game. Balls to walls hard on the Infamous setting.

Started Sleeping Dogs again. Not sure if I'll stick with it, was getting a bit bored because it's kinda easy.

Also trying to get through Half-Life Opposing Force and Sunrider MoA. Applied the uncensor patch to Sunrider cause I hate playing anything knowing there's something missing if I can put it back in. Half-Life Opposing Force feels very true to the 1st game so far.

Tried Peggle from Popcap. Seemed like a little fun, might be something to replace Huniepop (match 3) on the 4:3 thinkpad until Huniepop 2 drops. I just love match 3 with pleasing aesthetics and unlikable American bitches in the background.

Got Snow Runner last week. Absolutely love it. I tried previous game and it was fun, but this one is just turned to 11. I love that it is open world and you get payed for jobs, so you can buy upgrades and trucks etc. Makes game so much better then just a string of missions.

I hadn't played the PC in years. It was located in the bedroom (couldn't play after the missus went to bed) and it was long in the tooth being based on a Q9300, a R270X etc. I really wanted to play Toy Soldiers again so looked into the most cost effective means to get back playing my Steam library. Ended up going with an Optiplex running a 3rd gen Core i5, 16GB of DDR-II, an SSD for the OS, a 500GB hdd and sticking in a motherboard powered GTX1050Ti.

It's great to be back playing those games. I've played lots of Toy Soldiers again and just bought the Cold War expansion. I bought FarCry 4 pretty much as soon as it was a decent price on Steam but the old machine couldn't handle it. I've been playing away in the living room as soon as everyone else is in bed. It's great.
